FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The album may be called “Of Losing Interest” but the overwhelming critical and fan response to Fen‘s latest release has been anything but a lack of interest. Hard City gushes, “progressive melodic rock that you must hear to understand the magic.” The Ringmaster hails Fen as “a thriving infection gone wild, a nigging treat for the psyche with its contagion of progressive melodic enterprise, insatiable rock n roll hooks, and mesmeric shadows. Every song borders perfection. Melodic rock at it’s best.” And over at the BCFM Rock Show, they simple praise Of Losing Interest as “a great record from a first rate band. A release that will do both Fen’s and Ripple Music’s growing reputations the power of good.”Following the breakout premiere of the album on Heavy Planet, Ripple Music is proud to announce the release of Of Losing Interest world-wide. Look for it as it’s headed towards a music store near you . . . both physically and digitally.Following up on 2010’s breakout album, Trails Out of Gloom, the band return to their heavier roots with the brand new album, Of Losing Interest! Once again recorded at Creativ Studios with longtime producer, Mike Southworth at the helm, the band have crafted themselves an album that perfectly balances the technical virtuosity of heavy metal with the more down to earth tones of the early 90’s alternative rock movement. Of Losing Interest is now available through Nail Distribution in North America, Code 7 in the UK, Clearspot International in Europe, and the online Ripple Music store.
Fen will be hitting the road to begin support Of Losing Interest in September:
Sept 21st: Kamloops, BC – The Dirty Jersey
Sept 22nd: Salmon Arm, BC – Hideaway Pub
Sept 25th: Calgary, AB – Vern’s Bar
Sept 28th: Prince George, BC – Riley’s Pub
Sept 29th: Dawson Creek, BC – Rockwell’s
Here’s what the press has to say:
“Fen combine more traditional prog passages with heavy riffs creating a unique sound. The band certainly know the way around their respective instruments and have the talent to pull off the complex passages.” – Get Ready To Rock!
“Certainly, Of Losing Interestis different than its predecessor, but not entirely unexpected from Fen. Being heavier rock, even metal, the album still offers the listener their darker side. Recommended. 4 / 5” – Dangerdog
“Now they are back with a stunning new album titled ‘Of losing interest’, which musically goes into a very high quality Progressive Rock/Metal direction. It is especially thanks to the superb vocalwork of singer DOUG HARRISON that FEN’s music is lifted way above other bands in this extensive genre called Prog. 8.6/10 ” – Strutter ‘zine
